2018.07.22 Juniper Hill Painswick

A follow-up task with the Back from The Brink Project at Juniper Hill.  Fencing around a Juniper Tree and scrape (created to allow seeds to germinate and grow on as they prefer bare ground in which to establish). Four of us and the Project Officer plus his son worked on getting posts in and wire netting,plus barbed wire on top. Hopefully this will prevent any nibbling by rabbits and discourage grazing by cattle.

Hard work on the steep slope, trying to maintain your position under the forces of gravity,  but worthwhile in helping this native evergreen recover in numbers –  there were 2 or 3 seedlings already within the fenced area, along with others in nearby caged plots.
